Cat sat in her cockpit awaiting the `go' order. Nervousness, then anxiety, then downright fear as she waited for her first combat scramble. Days earlier she learned how to fly this bird, and now she was expected to fight with it? Just as the scramble order, her launch and form up with her wingman was all a blur. She was thrown into the soup, almost lost her leader. Banking hard to port then hard over starboard, a Cylon cut her off got behind her leader. Later, she couldn't remember because it happened so fast.

She got her first combat kill.
